Lumpia is a popular Filipino snack made with a thin, crepe-like wrapper. It is also known as a spring roll, and it can be served as a hot appetizer or a main dish. Typically, this dish is filled with meat, seafood, and/or vegetables.

In this twist on a beloved classic, I've prepared lumpia with a filling of cheesy hot dogs.

4 lumpia


For the cheesy hot dog lumpia:

  • 1 hot dog, boiled or steamed

  1. Dilute the cornstarch in water. Set aside.
  2. Slice cooked hot dog into quarters.
  3. Lay lumpia wrapper on a plate.
  4. Line a quarter of the hotdog and cheese sticks at least 2 inches above the bottom of the wrapper, leaving at least 1 to 1½ inches of space on each side
  5. Fold the lumpia wrapper from the bottom to the center. Then fold the wrapper from both the left and right sides to the center. From there, start rolling it.

Hi Pamela,

It was actually my first time to try this snack. I must say that I really like it. The crunchiness of the outside texture plus the softness of the inside made the entire dish perfect.
